Here's a start:

The "Chase" cues are especially piquant, today. I recommend the Chase Medium.

The problem with B movie music is that most films commissioned original scores - even the cheap ones. As such, those scores are still owned by someone, usually the studios; they'd re-use music to save time/money. It was a great training ground for future "real" composers. Henry Mancini was one of the anonymous composers who wrote music for "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" films as well as the Francis the Talking Mule series. Oh, and the Bonzo films - music for monkeys.

Thanks for the link! I definitely recognize some of those tracks!

I know what you mean about low-budget films that could still afford original scores, thanks to people like Albert Glasser, Leith Stevens, Ronald Stein, Sawtell and Shefter, and many others. I was thinking too of b- or z-films that used library music, such as PLAN 9 and others. And didn't TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD use the Hi-Q library?

Thanks again!

also the music for Have Gun Will Travel is done by Bernard Hermann (title music). He was only given credit for the pilot show Three Bells to Perdido but the remainin programs he was not.
